For my two cents, Kidsclick! is the first place I go when looking for info for a child’s homework assignment or to find out information about almost anything (even for grownups). Children’s librarians have categorized thousands of sites by subject, so that you can easily discover great sites for math games, butterflies, presidents, physics, pharaohs, election 2000, whatever… (all legitimate and useful!) It also brings together online encyclopedias, almanacs, maps, and dictionaries in its reference section. In addition, it offers a great children’s tutorial on Internet searching. A similar site designed for grownups is the Librarian’s Index to the Internet (http://www.lii.org).

Traffick is a niche Internet site that focuses on explaining, exploring, and analyzing the major web portals such as Yahoo and AOL. Much of the world’s Internet traffic routes through the major portal companies and their properties, but why? Traffick’s columnists and news updates will help the reader to understand the importance of the portal companies in the new economy, and the site’s regular test drives will help the user to get the most out of portal features. Traffick is definitely not just another list of useful links. It offers real insight into the worlds of web navigation, browsing, and the new media giants’ battle for supremacy. Site content is updated daily; weekly and monthly newsletters are available at http://www.traffick.com/newsletters.asp.
